Park City has an exciting and colorful past. The town began as a mining town in the wild west. As the mining industry matured and the mines in the area gave out, the town found a new passion: skiing. With the incredibly light Utah powder, Park City established an international repution as the place to hit the slopes.
Attracted by the quaint setting of historic downtown, Park City also became a Mecca for Utah's artists. As Park City streets filled with skiers, the downtown shops began to fill with galleries. Park City quickly captured the title as Utah's Art City from Springville.
In 1985, the burgeoning art town went into overdrive when the Sundance Institute hosted the United States Film Festival in Park City. The Sundance Film Festival raised the stature of Park City from a state oddity to an area of international note. The 2002 Olympics further established Park City's reputation as both a cultural and recreation center.
In February 2003, pcut.net opened its cyber portal. Hey, wait a second, there is nothing even remotely historical about that!
